West composed and executive produced the record, which arrives exactly one year after he issued Jesus Is Born
Exactly one year after the release of Jesus Is Born, Kanye West’s Sunday Service Choir have returned with an EP called Emmanuel. The five-song project was composed and executive produced by West. Listen to Emmanuel below.
According to press materials, Emmanuel means “God is with us” and the music featured on the EP is composed of “ancient and Latin inspired new music.” The EP was released on Christmas day in “celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ.”
Kanye West’s most recent solo studio album Jesus Is King arrived last year following multiple delays. This year, he’s shared a few one-off singles, including “Wash Us in the Blood” with Travis Scott, “DONDA,” and “Nah Nah.” He was meant to release a new album, also called DONDA, this summer, however the LP never materialized.
